As some of you may or may not know we used to have a WAP mobile phone service on the Jelena Online site. We have discontinued it because the usage wasn't high enough to justify the work that was needed to maintain it. We feel that the cost of a WAP mobile phone and maintaining it was perhaps out of reach for the majority of youngsters.

For a while we have been looking into the alternative of providing a SMS messenger service which can be accessed by anyone with an ordinary mobile phone.

For those of you who are unfamiler with SMS it's a system whereby information (in our case it will the latest score/result of Jelena's match) is sent by text direct to your mobile phone. Very useful if you're stuck in the middle of nowhere and are wondering how Jelena is doing.

We are now in a position to offer this service immediately (that said Jelena isn't playing for a couple of weeks) and like the WAP site this service will be made free of charge.

However before we go to the trouble of setting this up we really need some feedback to see if the demand is there.

So if any of you would be interested in receiving Jelena's latest score/result on your mobile reply to this post and let us know.

Many thanks
